Champion Christian School (CCS) provides an environment in which students can personally thrive.  Our students traditionally not only score above the national averages, but they score in the upper 1/3 of students who are at their same ability levels.  Students generally respond well to support and attention.  This kind of focus on student preparation is a characteristic of CCS.  SAT scores of college bound seniors from religious schools are significantly higher than the national average as shown in the following chart.
 
       
 
In terms of basic academic skills, we find that our students do better in reading and math skills as measured by both individual student progress, and overall acheivement scores.  When you examine the scores tracked by the National NCES scores, private school students have consistently outperformed public school students in reading and math. (National Center for Educational Statistics 1978-2011) 

      


 
Personal faith is important in understanding life, happiness, and achieving success. Although many Christians hope that because they practice their faith at home and in church that their child will 'get it'. That is just simply not what the research is showing.  Studies now indicate that children begin to lose their faith in the early elementary years because of their secular educational training (even if that training is done in a secular school by Christian teacher who cannot significantly practice their faith at school).  A recent Cardus study found that "attending a Protestant Christian school seems to have impacted graduates' choice to stay within the Christian faith into adulthood (Pennings, et al. 2011)" 
 

 
 
Many people mistakenly believe that secular government run schools are what is "normal".  This has only been true in the last two generations in our country. The research speaks clearly to this issue as we know that graduates of protestant religious schools feel much less helpless about dealing with life and are much more likely to seek a job that fits their religious and moral values (Cardus). As you can see, school is an important factor in helping students to be able to deal with life, but having a Christian education is the determining factor.

Most parents want their children to succeed, and to contribute to the larger society of which they are a part.  We know from research that Protestant Christian school graduates give more money to their churches and other religious causes as well as spend more time volunteering than others do (Cardus). They also base their morality on absolute Truths.  A Christian education, makes a difference in society as well as the lives of individual students.


          Parental Satisfaction

Parental satisfaction is an indication of student success, and as such, students whose families who are connected with their school do better than those who are not. Being connected is about having values that are similar, not just being a part of a parent group.  Most parents who come to Champion that have not been a part of Christian education in the past find themselves overwhelmingly pleased with the DIFFERENCE in a Christian education.  It is hard to know what you are missing until it is too late.  Parents of students in schools that match their values and worldview tend to be more satisfied with their school than parents in public school systems (CAPE, 2013).
